South Carolina House of Representatives is currently under the majority control by the Republican Party with 78 members. The Democratic Party members only number 48. South Carolina has maintained itself as a Red (Repbulican) State for a number of years.
House Representatives are a South Carolinians first contact usually with dealing with State issues. It’s important to know your candidates and which ones really care about their constituents and which ones will only vote their own way or the party way.
This past year has shown many South Carolinians the true colors of some of the State’s Legislators such as Beth Bernstein (D-District 78 Richland) who held up a Child Rights Bill from being heard, that would have allowed children of divorce equal access to both loving and fit parents, or the number of House Representatives that stood against the Heartbeat Bill. This is to include those who deny South Carolinians their Constitutional Right to Open Carry a firearm.
Know your candidates and know their willingness to uphold the moral fibers of our State and Government. Vote Smart this election!
